B.T.'S Smokehouse is a dry-rubbed and slow-smoked barbecue restaurant located in the downtown section of Sturbridge, Massachusetts. Owner and Head Chef Brian Treitman is committed to delivering the very best barbecue to Massachusetts and beyond. Focusing on Southern-style cuisine, the menu offers natural grass-fed beef, chicken, pork, and other meats that have been dry rubbed and slow smoked for up to 24 hours with local apple and hickory woods. In addition to standard barbecue fare, the restaurant also offers more unusual entrees such as smoked salmon, chili made with brisket meat, and smoked turkey and chicken. We are also BYOB, so grab your favorite 6 pack on your way in. B.T.'S has won numerous awards since opening its doors, including the New England Regional Chili Cookoff and placing in the Top Ten Barbecue Restaurants in New England, and the Boston Globe named B.T.'S one of the "ten best places to bask in barbecue".

If we're in the area, we always stop for B.T's smokin' brisket. It's the best! Their chili is made with the same brisket and is pretty good. Can't speak to their ribs, etc. The brisket is so good, we always go for that. Be ready for a wait, this place has been discovered and is super busy, but it's worth... More

Between waiting in line to order and then waiting even longer for our food to be ready, it was an hour between entering the restaurant and getting our food. They appear to get a lot of called in orders, so the line in front of you is not indicative of the wait. In all that time there was not a... More

I saw all the good reviews and was excited to go but boy was it a let down. Staff seemed to be annoyed when I ask questions about the food. When I finally got my food it was disgusting. Don't be fooled by the reviews.

Gonna keep it simple, hard to get good BBQ. True artists in the field of BBQ. The pork ribs don't need any sauce, the dry rub is amazing. Brisket is right out of the smoker, so moist. Wish I had room for smoked wings or dessert, next time.

I've been wanting to check this place out for a while now. I ended up going to OSV for the day and didn't have to come up with an excuse to drive all the way from Hartford to try it out. BBQ joints are a rarity in New England, but BT's makes it worth the trek. My girlfriend and I... More

Crowd favorite. Very casual. Excellent BBQ. The sauces are home made, including the ketchup - so taste it before you apply! You will not go wrong here.

according to everyone, including me, and I've had BBQ at at least 2 dozen places in New England. Great food, reasonable prices, big menu.
